This Marguerite has a sister also named Marguerite who was born about 1786 and who married on 26 January 1712, at Port Royal, Acadia, Rene Richard dit Beaupre ca 1688-1776.
In 1686, Marguerite and Claude were living with Claude's widowed mother, and their baby daughter Marie-Madeleine (named Marguerite in the census). They owned 1 gun, 3 arpents of worked land, 7 cattle, 8 sheep and 6 pigs. In 1693, the census shows that the amount of owned land had increased to 30 arpents. 
By 1698, there were 6 children in the household. The family had 10 cattle, 13 sheep, 8 pigs, 22 arpents of land, 3 fruit trees and 1 gun. The Landry family was counted again in the subsequent censuses at Port-Royal between 1700 and 1714.
"The signature of the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713 marked the end of the War of the Spanish Succession and the definitive transformation of Acadie in to the British colony of Nova Scotia, as well as the start of a long period of political instability in Acadie. The Acadians who inhabited this New Scotland had to choose between leaving for French territory such as île Royale (today's Cape Breton) or île Saint-Jean (today's Prince Edward Island), or swearing an unconditional oath of allegiance to the monarch in London. Instead, the Acadians proposed a compromise: they wished to remain on their lands and stay neutral in the event of a conflict between France and Great Britain. British colonial authorities grudgingly accepted since they did not have the military means in place to dissuade them."
By 1722, the Landry family had left their homestead in Annapolis Royal to settle at Port-Toulouse, Isle Royale (present-day Cape Breton) since they were counted there in the censuses of 1722, 1724, and 1726. No occupation or land were listed for Claude and Marguerite. He was described as being an elderly inhabitant. In 1726, there were only 2 children remaining in the family home.
Marguerite's date of death is unknown. A date of 28 APR 1777 at Bécancour, Quebec, Canada, at age 109-110 was entered but was unsourced and has been removed. Caution is advised. She isn't on the census of 1752 (La Roque).
